Exponents: World Records gives students 21 lessons on the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of exponents, as well as their use in parentheses and brackets. Each page has 15 problems as well as an explanation of the Order of Operations.
Students explore 21 different world records as they progress through this packet, records like: the quickest solution of Rubik’s Cube (7.87 seconds), the distance one man pushed a car using one finger (164 feet), the quickest ascent up the face of El Capitan (a 7,573 foot vertical climb), the longest motorcycle (722 feet long with 25 passenger seats), and much more…
At the bottom of each page is a three by three grid called “The Sequence Challenge” where students solve five exponent problems and discover the missing four numbers.
